The presidency of Donald Trump has highlighted issues concerning the relationship between policymakers and intelligence agencies. Trump already has publicly rejected the U.S. intelligence community's judgment on what may turn out to be the most important issue of his presidency: Russian interference in the election of 2016. Further strains are apparent concerning compliance with the Iran nuclear agreement. Episodes during past administrations of politicization and policy-intelligence tensions help to put the current situation into perspective.
